Sometimes I really love how international it is here--how there are people from every country, people have different dialects and different words/spellings for some things (was reminded of this by Rita's zucchini post earlier). Usually I like the diversity of being here.
But there are other times where I just want everyone to use the "normal" words I'm used to! I don't want to have to figure out what a capsicum or a courgette is! Or wonder if the person I'm emailing will think I'm an idiot if I spell color the way I'm used to instead of sticking a U in there.
I guess it further complicates matters that there's no one "correct" way here--people will spell it "favour" in one sentence and "favor" in the next. It's not like it's hard to understand, there's just this OCD part of me that wants there to be one correct way instead of being all in-betweeny like this!
Okay, vent over.
